Chairman: you did engineering from Jadavpur? Which stream?
Chairman: then u did MBA from IMT? Me: told a brief background of myself
Chairman: you are continuously changing your job? Now you want to come to civil service..Why is this frequent change?
Me: sir due to poor counselling i couldn’t get this understanding in the early years of my graduation years that i would like to go for civil service..it is only after post graduation i got the understanding because this job provides so much diversity and dynamics which is not there in any other jobs
Chairman: banking is also very dynamic job,dont you love your job?
Me: yes sir i do agree with you that it is a dynamic job and i definitely love my job because here i am a front end worker and i am being able to solve people’s problems directly
Chairman: then he further grilled me about inefficiencies and problems of banking, rural banking..about the problems of high interest rates charged by money lenders in rural areas..he was like there is no need of banking at all..i tried to pitch in with multiple points like financial inclusion, customer awareness, reducing customer complaints and service delivery..but he seemed to be very pissed off with the service of public sector banks😀 he was like No madam these are only big promises only on papers but actually bankers are doing nothing..no need of these banks at all.😀
Chairman: Who signs in Indian currency?
Me: RBI governor signs over it
Chairman: What is written in Indian currency?
Me: sir it is mentioned that I do promise to pay the bearer the amount of sum..currency is a bearer note

2nd board member: Q.Questions related to Gr. B (it is my last preference) Questions related to preference. I understand why you haven’t applied for gr C and gr D since you are already an officer with bank of India. But given a chance in gr B would u leave your job and go for gr B? Me. Sir I would never think twice and accept the service.
Q. Why executive is your first preference? Me: yes sir i have put gr B as my last preference and there are 2 major reasons behind this. First: sir police service is very lucrative and challenging job. And me as a person if i am given that challenge i would like to accept it and complete it. But if I compare the two services
Q. Would I interrupt? See these are very cliched words..explain me in your terms..what do u mean by a challenging job?
Me: sir i believe a challenging job demands some of the attributes. For example quick decision making, multi tasking, proper human resource management..these are the qualities that is required in a challenging job.
Q. Okay come to your next point
Me. Sir if i compare the two services i believe executive service provides more dimensions and diversity in terms of developmental work. My second point is that when i applied for WBCS 2019 exam i was single, now i am married and i have a family..some of the priorities have changed in two years and I as a person believe in consensus building. So this is the reason of giving last preference
Q. I wouldn’t refute that, yes ofcourse priorities do change .but if there are two profiles then Would u go for uniformed field police job or civil job where down the years you can better manage your family?
Me. Sir i would go for uniformed field job. Because if i enter into the service then i wouldn’t like to work from back seat..i do not look for a comfort zone..i would accept the challenge and that is why i am leaving my present job.
Q. You have seen the policing of Delhi NCR and Kolkata..two big metropolis..do u find any Differences in policing of Delhi NCR and Kolkata Me: Mentioned about the differences from my personal experiences. During my stay there i used to me very afraid of going outside the campus..some of the incidents happened which are still vivid in my memory,policing in western Up is not that efficient from women safely perspective as compared to Kolkata
Q. Is it because of the cultural differences?
Me. Culture plays a part but definitely major credit goes to the police administration of Kolkata
Q.can you be more specific about the steps? Me. Sir here in Kolkata i do find more PCR mobile vans. Police is trying to reach people to make us aware about our rights. I find this kind of citizen centric approach is absent is NCR and there is a gap between police and citizen
Q. I would like to add one more point here that not a single crime goes unreported here. And we must be very proud of that.
Me. Yes sir i do agree with you and we are very proud of this fact.
3rd board member: Q. Do you know about 73rd and 74th constitutional amendments?
Me: yes. 73rd amendment is regarding providing constitutional status to panchayati raj institutions and 74th amendment is regarding providing constitutional status to municipalities
Q. What was the necessity?
Me: explaned about the necessity..empowering PRIs, financial autonomy, people’s participation and democratic decentralization taxation powers, irregular elections and corruption
Q. No but here in WB we always had regular elections..yes ofcourse corruption issue was there
Me: yes sir WB was one amoung few states that implemented PRIs even before the constitutional amendments but other problems existed like important subjects were there without sufficient powers.
Q.you know about audit in every govt department..but What is social audit?
Me: sir social audit is from people and community point of view. In every department beneficiaries and community come forward and they give the rating about what was expected and what was achieved.
Q.Which company first invented mouse?
Me: I couldn’t say. Chairman asked the 4th member if he had any questions. No questions Okay thank you Shatarupa.
|Her feedback of Mock Interview:||Mentors in mock interview prepared us with opinion based questions which helped me lot since my interview was mostly opinion based. Soumya sir specifically asked me to read about PRIs and 3 questions directly came from that topic. I couldn’t be more thankful and grateful to the entite team.. Some of the questions asked to me in real interview were exactly same as that was asked to me in mock interview. For example: why do you frequently change your job?|
